We got our latest look at Pokemon Scarlet and Pokemon Violet tonight and a bunch of new information was revealed.
The biggest piece of information was definitely the fact that the Legendary Pokemon Koraidon and Miraidon will be available from the get go and they’ll act as mounts to get through the open world which is the brand new Paldea region. This includes driving, flying and getting through the sea on your trust Pokemon mount.
There are three modes of transport:
Spring/Drive: Traveling through Paldea on foot can be quite the hassle. If you learn how to ride Sprinting Build Koraidon or Drive Mode Miraidon, you’ll be able to traverse the expansive Paldea region more freely and at full speed.
Swimming/Aquatic: On your adventure, you’ll be able to jump into rivers, lakes, and vibrant oceans to approach the Pokémon that live there or cross perilous waters in a snap by riding Swimming Build Koraidon or Aquatic Mode Miraidon.
Gliding/Glide: You can jump from mountains, towering cliffs or tall buildings and glide toward your destination. Not only does this offer you more options when choosing what to do, but you can also freely glide around and enjoy a view that you can see only from the Paldean skies.
We got another look at multiplayer which also includes the ability to get around the open world with friends on your legendary mounts alongside three friends.
There will be 8 gyms in the game which is one of the three stories that the game will feature. The other two haven’t been spoken about yet, but it was said that you’ll be able to go through the three grand stories as you see fit.
There will also be a greatly expanded Pokedex. We got a new look at new Pokemon including Wooper (Paldean Form), Fidough, Cetitan, as well as Tera form Pokemon (basically big crystal Pokemon) which are able to change types and enhance moves in Tera Raids (which seem to by like Dynamax raids).
THE CHEAPEST POKEMON SCARLET/VIOLET COPIES
Those that pre-order the game will be able to get a special Pikachu that cannot be caught in game. It knows the move fly and its Tera Type is flying.
